Andre 3000 has changed profoundly throughout his music career. Throughout his music journey, it seems as though he experiments a lot with many different music styles including hip-hop, funk, R&B and even some aspects of rock and pop.

In Andre 3000’s new album “New Blue Sun,” shows this new alternative way of Andre 3000’s music. The song “That Night in Hawaii When I Turned Into a Panther and Started Making These Low Register Purring Tones That I Couldn’t Control… SHYT was Wild,” consisted of many low tones as said in the title. The main instrument he included in this song was the flute which carried the melody throughout the 10 minute song. He used other instruments that I couldn’t really identify to also carry the tone throughout the song.
